Did you hold your breath?

Did you stop to think?

Did you look over your shoulder?

Did you look around before you pulled this off?

Did you ever consider?

Welcome to the life that you will never have

Watch it pass in front of you

You‘re no Hemingway, no Maquis de Sade

You‘re just a fool without a clue


Take me and use me

Love me and confuse me

Stay here forever

You can have it all

Hold me and squeeze me

Life can be so easy

I‘m so in love with you

Take me, I am yours


Do you have a wish, do you have a dream?

Or some dirty desire?

Go ahead and look, look out for the one

That will take you higher

And when you‘ve finally found

That you‘re ugly and small

Turn around and run back home

They‘ll be waiting for you, they‘ll forgive everything

Just as always when you‘re done


Take me use me...
